An Oklahoma motor vehicle bill of sale is a receipt for a vehicle purchased from an unlicensed vendor that is executed by the buyer and seller. The buyer will be required to present the completed form when they apply for title and registration. The document must include the purchase price, date of sale, and the vehicle make, model, year, and VIN. The contact information of the buyer and seller should be included as well. Once the form has been completed and both parties have signed, it acts as proof that the vehicle was sold, the full payment was made, and the vehicle’s ownership was released by the seller to the buyer. Furthermore, the buyer will be required to submit a copy of the document when they apply for registration.
